Hybridizer's Comment : Need a non-confrontational peacemaker for the more strident colors? A bit of friendly advice: try this one. A pink that isn't quite pink, but a subtle pastel blend. Closed and ruffled pinkish white standards shade to lilac white on lower edges, while the central portion deepens slightly to pale opera pink. Flared falls are toned and lightly veined greyed lilac pink, with an almost imperceptible greenish white sheen. Beards are peach buff with lavender base. Imposing show stalks with eight or nine buds, beautiful form. Vigorous grower.
